Rights and Advocacy
We help individuals play a large role in rights and advocacy for people with disabilities. Throughout the year individuals take part in frequent conference calls with state officials or travel to Springfield to discuss new rules being proposed. We also support a Consumer Council, comprised of individuals elected by their peers in the program, which convenes regularly to address any concerns or opportunities.
